Crystal Antlers, Old Bricks, Free Electric State 

When: Fri., Nov. 4, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

Crystal Antlers inhabit a wild, woolly world. They create an atmosphere of buzzing electronics, acrid guitars, twinkling keyboards and a backbeat that melds itself to the mood, be it a dreamy tribal thrum or thundering punk-prog cacophony. The band followed their much-buzzed 2009 debut, Tentacles, in July with Two-Way Mirror. It's somewhat more focused, though it may be hard to tell given that the eccentric arrangements come enveloped in a fuzzy wash of sound. The biggest advance is in frontman Johnny Bell's vocals, which have become more tuneful and varied with time. The meandering folk haze of Old Bricks and the churning blasts of Free Electric State provide complementary sonic bookends in the opening slots. —Chris Parker
